Centaur Theatre presents

WILDSIDE THEATRE FESTIVAL

January 4 to 13, 2018

The “hottest two weeks in winter” returns with six stimulating shows!



CONFABULATION

PRODUCED BY: CONFABULATION / FEATURING: MATT GOLDBERG AND FIVE GUEST STORYTELLERS

Hosted by comedian and storyteller Matt Goldberg, Confabulation is an evening of curated true stories, told by the people who lived them. For Wildside, Confabulation is exploring the theme “Eye of the Storm – stories of the quiet and the chaos”.

ONE NIGHT ONLY!! WED JAN 10 9PM


IDIOT

CONCEPT AND CREATION (IN COLLABORATION WITH THE PERFORMERS): HELEN SIMARD / WRITTEN BY: HELEN SIMARD, MATHIEU LEROUX / FEATURING: STACEY DÉSILIER, STEPHANIE FROMENTIN, JACKIE GALLANT, SÉBASTIEN PROVENCHER, EMMALIE RUEST, ROGER WHITE, TED YATES

Part dance show, part rock concert, and part hallucination, Idiot is the second of a trilogy of absurd creations inspired by the legendary American musician: Iggy Pop.

“It’s raw, it’s direct, it’s brutal, and it’s beautiful. Helen Simard manages to both move us and make us laugh with Idiot. It makes you want to fall back into Pop’s discography, and to reinvent the world in your own fashion.”
– Le Canal Auditif
